Pretoria, 2 May 2016 – SARS Customs officials busted a South African woman in possession of 4kg cocaine worth R1.2-million at the Cape Town International Airport yesterday at 5.15pm.
The incident happened when a customs official inspected the hand luggage of an African woman with chocolate containers in her bag.
The chocolate containers were then opened when the woman failed to produce a receipt or proof of purchase. It turned out that they were filled with 200 bullets of unknown white substance that tests confirmed to be cocaine.
The woman and her pick up were handed over to the South African Police Service for further investigation and are expected to appear in Bellville Magistrate court on Thursday, 4 May 2016.
